Hi Perlian,

Sorry to hear you are experiencing these issues.

Please can you try the following:
- Write a fresh DietPi C2 image to your EMMC
- Remove the USB drive from the device for this test
- Power on with the fresh DietPi C2 image on EMMC
- Complete the same installation of software you selected before (Webmin Nextcloud Samba MC)
- See if the issue reoccurs

Failing that, let us know the following:
- PSU used (eg: Official Odroid 5v/2A)
- USB drive used (eg: WD elements 500GB 2.5 inch)

Hi,

... and what eMMC Module do you use? Samsung, Toshiba or Sandisk?
Note 2:
Black eMMC module is made with Samsung eMMC chipset.
Red/Blue(normal) eMMC module is made with Sandisk or Toshiba chipset.
C1/C0/C1+/C2 works with Black and Red eMMC modules.
XU4/XU3/U3/X2/U2 do NOT work with Black eMMC module.
Have you tested, if a installation on a MicroSD card (e.g. SanDisk Extreme) will work better?

have an EMMC module with red PCB and a black chip on it
Is that the wrong type ?
used it before with a Odroid XU4 with no problems

Cant understand why the problems first appear after successful basic install

whatever I try a new install with a normal SD Card now

Red PCB is for XU3/4 board. Black is for C1/C2 boards.

Black PCB does not work with XU3/4, could be the same for Red PCB with C1/C2: http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products ... 5628174287
